5.0 out of 5 stars You're gonna love it Possums!, 3 Feb. 2005
H. R. Trigg "howietUK" (Swindon, Wilts United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Dame Edna Experience: Complete Collection [DVD] [1987] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
I remember watching this series at the time, and thinking it was one of the funniest shows I'd ever seen. When I bought this collection, I was a little worried that it would have dated so much it would no longer be funny.
I was very wrong. It is as hysterical as when it has was originally aired - classic TV; un-politically correct, disrespectful to her guests, ejecting boring guests, awful song & dance numbers (that she does so well) and general hilarity. Many guests including, Mel Gibson, Grace Jones, Julio Iglesias, Charlton Heston, Jerry Hall, UK politicians (in particular Jeffery Archer), Larry Hagman, Germaine Greer, and so many more, accompanied by her downtrodden bridesmaid Madge Allsop.
These 5 discs are brilliantly put together; the first 2 include the 6 episodes from series 1, the second 2 series 2, and the third disc the Christmas Specials. Not much for 5 discs you may ask! However...
I have never seen a box set that includes so many extraordinary extras before. It's literally jam packed; including 3 'audience with Edna' shows (each nearly an hour long) from over the years, UK TV interviews with Edna (one hilarious one including Whoopi Goldberg), and also with Barry Humphries, Comic Relief appearances, and my favourite and absolute gem - 'Disco Matilda' which is a very slim Edna performing Waltzing Matilda live in 1979 on Top Of The Pops! And look for the 'Madge' button! It's hilarious...
If you love Edna, this is truly a fans delight.
